Burnley v Posh | Match Preview

Posh head to Turf Moor to face Burnley on Saturday lunchtime.

3 January 2020

The Emirates FA Cup is back with Posh heading to Premier League side Burnley in the third round.

Peterborough United make the journey north to face Burnley at Turf Moor in the third round of the Emirates FA Cup on Saturday lunchtime (12.31pm kick-off) looking to bounce back from a tough festive period that has seen Darren Ferguson’s men lose three games in a row.

It is the same run of form for the Clarets who were beaten by Aston Villa last time out in the Premier League over the New Year period. Burnley are managed by Sean Dyche and have belied their obvious budget restraints to compete admirably at the highest level since returning to the Premier League under Dyche.


Posh welcome back defender Frankie Kent from suspension and he could feature although boss Darren Ferguson was quick to praise his centre back partnering of Mark Beevers and Rhys Bennett for their performances in defeat at Lincoln City on New Year’s Day.

Midfielder Siriki Dembele will serve the first of a three-match ban following his red card against the Imps, but Serhat Tasdemir could return after a hip problem. New signing Reece Brown goes straight into the squad following his arrival from Huddersfield Town on-loan until the end of the season.

Frazer Blake-Tracy, Idris Kanu, Nathan Thompson and Josh Knight are injured but teenager Ricky-Jade Jones has travelled. George Boyd is expected to start against his former club.

Burnley boss Sean Dyche has confirmed he will make changes to his starting line-up but will play a ‘strong side’ although defender Ben Gibson is not quite ready. Aaron Lennon, Joe Hart and James Rodriguez could start while Danny Drinkwater has returned to parent club Chelsea following a loan stint in Lancashire.


“Sean Dyche has done a fantastic job. I get on well with him. When you look at what he has achieved when you take into considerations the budget compared to everyone else in the league, it is remarkable and he deserves enormous credit. I am sure they will make changes, but whatever side they field will have quality.

“We will have to defend our box well, both in open play and at set-pieces, but we are not going there to defend, we are going there to attack. There is no point talking about what if’s, if we are going to go out of the competition it won’t be for the want of trying. It is a good tie for us; a distraction from the league and one we are looking forward too,” Darren Ferguson said.


“There will be changes but it is a strong team that will take on Peterborough. Ben Gibson won’t be fit, he is training, but he has had two sessions in the last three weeks of training,” manager Sean Dyche said in Friday’s press conference.


The game is not all-ticket. Posh fans will be able to buy tickets at Turf Moor. Tickets went off sale at 3pm on Friday with just over 1,650 sold.

Posh were knocked out of the Emirates FA Cup at the third round stage by Burnley at Turf Moor.

Peterborough United conceded three goals in the opening 23 minutes at Turf Moor, but put up a decent fist of things against Premier League side Burnley, eventually beaten 4-2 with the second goal controversially given despite Jay Rodriguez standing in a clear offside position affecting the ability of goalkeeper Christy Pym to make a save.

The goal went to VAR but surprisingly it was given after a short delay despite the front man having to leap out of the way to avoid contact whilst standing offside. Ivan Toney and Ricky-Jade Jones netted for Posh in a spirited response.

It was a nightmare start for Posh as inside the opening six minutes the Premier League side took the lead as a Wood header was parried into the path of RODRIGUEZ and he made no mistake from close-range. A VAR place took place, but Wood was clearly onside.

Goalkeeper Pym produced a fine stop to keep out Johann Berg Gudmundsson on nine minutes as the Clarets came close to doubling their lead. Burnley doubled the lead on 11 minutes as PIETERS drilled the ball into the bottom corner from 25-yards.

Posh were a whisker away from pulling a goal back on 18 minutes as Reed fed Brown, but the debutant saw his right-foot shot roll inches past the far post. Burnley made it 3-0 on 22 minutes, HENDRICK’s shot taking a deflection off Beevers and into the back of the net.

Maddison fired wide of the target from 30-yards after a strong run on 25 minutes. Toney should have done better on 38 minutes from a teasing Maddison centre but he stabbed his effort at the near post wide. Aaron Lennon should have done better at the other end but he sliced wide.

TONEY reduced the arrears on 39 minutes as he latched onto as poor Lowton header to round goalkeeper Joe Hart and slot into the net for his 16th goal of the campaign. Reed saw a shot blocked as Posh ended the first half strongly.

Maddison saw a low shot well held by Hart moments after the re-start with the Clarets bringing on Taylor at the interval. Burnley extended their advantage on 52 minutes as a reverse pass from Lennon picked out RODRIGUEZ and despite a VAR check, the goal was given.

Brown was booked for a foul before Posh made a change with Eisa withdrawn for teenager Ricky-Jade Jones. Posh introduced another teenager on 63 minutes with Kyle Barker on for Reed. Maddison drilled a free-kick into the wall on 70 minutes with the follow-up screwed well wide.

Posh pulled a goal back on 76 minutes as a corner from Maddison was nodded across by Beevers and stabbed home by 17-year-old JONES. There was a check via VAR but after a lengthy delay the goal was given to the delight of the Posh fans.

Toney flicked a Butler cross wide of the target on 80 minutes as Posh buoyed by the goal and the backing of the large travelling support continued to press.
